It’s always disappointing when someone who’s ostensibly in the the RKBA camp shoots himself in the foot. So to speak. The bigger problem, though, is that we all get hit with the shrapnel. All you can do when it happens is point out the problem and try to limit the damage. If you’ve been following along lately, you know that the latest self-identified member of the Zumbo/Tsai media hall of shame is Guns & Ammo’s Dick Metcalf. But despite his verbal negligent discharge, there are those who’ve argued that these things are too inside baseball to really matter in the great scheme of things . . .
Metcalf even has a few drinking buddies who’ve tried to rationalize away what he wrote as a refreshing, if poorly worded, attempt to look at “the entire Second Amendment.” Okay then. But the thing about these self-inflicted wounds is they hurt every bit as much as – if not more than – those caused by the enemy. And even worse, as with all NDs, they’re almost invariably preventable. As Dan Rowan might have said, thanks a lot, Dick. [h/t Bob]
